Mississauga, ON — May 2, 2002 — A memorial service is taking place tomorrow, May 3, 2002, at the Angus Glen Golf & Country Club in Markham, Ont., for Dan Thrussell, 63, a former executive with FAG Bearings Ltd., Mississauga, Ont. Mr. Thrussell died April 22, 2002, after a six-month struggle with cancer.

His career at FAG spanned 38 years. He held various management positions and contributed greatly to the success of FAG, said Bob Marshall, vice-president and general manager of FAG’s National Sales Division in Canada.

“Dan was a great friend and colleague to many of us at FAG. He has touched many of our lives and he will be deeply missed,” Mr. Marshall said.

Mr. Thrussell transferred in January 1999 to the U.S. to serve as vice-president of sales and marketing of FAG Bearings Corporation, Danbury, Conn. He retired from active service with the company in February this year.
